Event Report – Kevin O’Connor Charity Golf Day 2018

Safer Air crowned Kevin O’Connor Charity Golf Day Champions

Over 50 golfers took part in Kevin O’Connor’s charity golf day at South Staffordshire Golf Club on a sunny 7th June 2018 in aid of Cerebral Palsy Sport.

Kevin has supported the charity over the past three years and the funds raised from his unique charity golf days has enabled children, young people and adults with Cerebral Palsy to discover the joys of swimming for the first time.

Following an enjoyable day of golfing fun for all the teams the golfers enjoyed a two course dinner and then geared up for the charity auction and presentation of prizes. Thank you to everyone who donated auction items for this year’s charity auction.

The Kevin O’Connor Charity Golf Day raise over £2,600 for Cerebral Palsy Sport

Kevin spoke of his gratitude of everyone who played in the golf day and said:

“I am delighted that the tenth annual Kevin O’Connor Charity Golf day has managed to raise such a fabulous amount of money for this very deserving charity.  The entire event would not be possible without the participation of the players, the support from Liz and Alison Colesby as well as that of Ali Talbot from CP Sport and, of course, Sue LeBeau and her wonderful staff at South Staffs Golf Club.  I am looking forward to next year’s event already, which will be on June 20th.  In the meantime happy golfing and happy swimming. Kevin”

The funds raised in this year’s charity golf day will help support the Worcester Swimming Development Gala that is taking place on October 20th at Perdiswell Leisure Centre in Worcester as well as further swimming development in the West midlands in early 2019.

Thank you to everyone who supported the golf day and thank you especially to Kevin for your fantastic support.
